In this episode, Paul talks about the birth of Wings. The band started much like The Beatles as friends having, fun playing music together and grew into the seminal act everyone remembers today. Paul also discusses Linda’s growth as a singer and their songwriting.
In this episode, Paul discusses the content of the Deluxe Edition of Band on the Run including an abundance of photos from Lagos, a never-before-available video of Paul and Linda spending time with the natives, and footage from the photo shoot for the original album cover.
In episode two of the series, Paul discusses how he came about choosing Lagos as the location to record Band on the Run. He also talks about how they actually had to build portions of the studio in Lagos, which helped shape the sound of the album.
In the debut episode of the series, Paul discusses the desperado/renegade roots of Band on the Run, his new band's musical evolution, and the influence this seminal album has had on many people to this day.
